The construct of psychopathy is gathering a lot of attention in the research literature for children and adolescence with conduct problems and offending behaviour. It is hoped that the study of psychopathy will help with the appropriate classification of the heterogeneous group of children who have disruptive behaviour problems and begin the process of developing preventative and treatment interventions for the most complex and difficult to young people. The literature review focuses on psychopathic characteristics and their importance in aiding the predictive validity of offending pathways. There is a particular emphasis on the potential clinical implications of applying the psychopathy construct to young people and areas for future research.
